IARS Annual Meeting OnDemand is a world class online resource provided by the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) for anesthesiology leaders, physicians, physician residents, and others with doctoral degrees, as well as health professionals in anesthesia-related practice. IARS OnDemand is designed to help professionals in the field stay abreast of the latest advancements, education, and scientific research related to anesthesiology.
In recent years, a new approach for EEG monitoring in anesthesiology has been developed, making it possible for anesthesia care providers to easily read and recognize “EEG signatures” and dose-response patterns for most anesthetic drugs. This activity is composed of several courses, developed to introduce you to the basics of using EEG to recognize the altered states of arousal caused by commonly used anesthetic drugs.
Sponsored by the IARS, OpenAnesthesia™ premiered in 2009 as an experimental project designed to advance graduate medical education in the field of anesthesia. Founded by Dr. Edward C. Nemergut and Dr. Robert Thiele, the initiative has grown considerably and now offers comprehensive online and mobile educational resources for anesthesiologists around the world.
SelfStudyPLUS is a personalized, adaptive learning system that provides access to more than 2,100 questions written by teaching physicians at top hospitals via an easy-to-use web app. It provides an opportunity for anesthesiologists to strengthen their knowledge and retention via innovative technology based on research in education, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience. Participants can earn up to 10 hours of CME for every 50 correct questions.
The IARS sponsors the SmartTots initiative in partnership with the FDA and works with multiple stakeholders to address scientific and clinical gaps regarding the safe use of anesthetics and sedatives in children. Research funded through SmartTots investigates multiple aspects of existing anesthetics and their administration, including dosage and exposure.
